In business since then 1940's and locally owned & operated the entire time , Halpin's Pharmacy & Treasure Room has announced it will go out of business before the end of this Summer. The store which is located at 11406 E. Sprague Ave in Spokane Valley, by the intersection of Sprague and Bowdish ,opened it's doors at the current location back in 1949 and will now close those same doors sometime in August.
Halpin's owners have already started to sell off the remaining merchandise and the pharmacy portion of the business has already closed after Rite Aid approached Halpin's to take over the pharmacy's customers. The store will remain open until August with it's selection of gifts and other general merchandise items.
The store had employed 22 but due to the relocation of the pharmacy the store now only employs about 10, all of which will be laid off. No word as to what business make take over the space later this year once Halpin's leaves but the building owner is said to be looking for new tenants.
Halpin's officially opened in 1940 and is one of the last remaining independent local pharmacies in Spokane area.
